Early Childhood Special Education Graduate Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Inclusive Early Childhood Practices is a collaborative effort between the Early Childhood Education Program and the Early Childhood Special Education Program intended for individuals seeking expertise in supporting the learning and development of all young children, including those at-risk or identified with disabilities. Required coursework is focused on culturally responsive practices and interventions that promote access, learning, and participation for all young children and their families.

This program is intended for individuals in education or human service fields, such as general early childhood education, nursing, psychology, physical and occupational therapy, social work, special education, speech and language therapy, who do not possess a California Education Specialist Credential.
